Natalie's Score: 90/100

A smoky, full-bodied, generous Australian red wine made from the iconic Cabernet Sauvignon grape. Supple and smooth. Loads of fleshy ripe black plums and blackberries on the palate. Finishes with a lick of spice and smoke. Pair with grilled meats.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
